22/11/23 UPDATE: Please be advised that our planned blasts and short closure of Maloneys Road that were due to occur this afternoon have been postponed. Once these activities have been rescheduled, we will advise of updated details in due course.
This notice is to update community members on activities at the Bowdens Silver Project site at Lue as part of ongoing exploration for the Bowdens Silver Project.
Bulk Sample Program
As previously advised, a bulk sampling program is planned to occur on site. Due to contractor availability, this program that was due to commence in September is occurring on site in the coming week. This work will be happening within the approved open cut pit area in three locations east of Maloneys Road. The program will involve the collection of ore for metallurgical tests. The program will involve the drilling of three identified areas and the initiation of blasts to dislodge the required material. Screening and loading of material for transport will also occur. These activities will occur Monday to Friday between the hours of 7am to 6pm.
Short Closure of Maloneys Road
Due to the program involving the initiation of three small explosive blasts, Maloneys Road will be closed in the vicinity of the activity for approximately 30 minutes around 2:00pm on Wednesday 22nd November 2023. Traffic management will be in place along Maloneys Road to ensure the safety of road users and contractors. During the short closure period, road users may need to utilise Bara Road if required.
All work will be conducted in line with the relevant state and local government approvals.
